I have him ranked at about 3 to 5
Santana
Peavy
Oswalt
Halladay
Pedro

Halladay is a innings eater, so he is a little more important in my h2h leagues.

He had a number of poor starts some of which were directly caused by his back. There aren't 5 pitchers that are clearly top 5 material in every stat, so whoever you pick is going to be weak in one.

I have RJ lower in my list than Halladay so I agree with you, I just don't have either of them in my top 5.


But at 43 is his back going to get better? He's on the decline of his career for sure. And the second half numbers he put up last year will be the ceiling for him this year. The floor? How bout him getting blown up? His back and his knees will NOT hold up.

And of course, mine. :-D

What I take from it is the "experts" all agree on the top four, from there it's a guessing game.

Another example of Halladay being underrated..

I woulnd't mind debating Halladay versus Wade Miller.

W/O factoring in injury risk, there's no question Santana, Pedro and Peavy are above him, wouldn't you agree?

Halladay is ranked #3 on my rankings this year, behind Santana and Pedro. I think I already mentioned that in this thread. Wins are obviously tough to predict, but Jake never seems to get any with the Padres, and I don't expect that trend to change.

Wade Miller? :-?
